The Climb X Icon climbing shoe is the perfect all around shoe for bouldering, gym, sport, and multi-pitch climbing. The synthetic fabric allows for a comfortable low-stretch fit while the hemp footbed helps keep odors down. The Icon features a neoprene tongue for breathability and comfort. Size up for a comfort fit and size down for a more aggressive performance fit but keep in mind that climbing shoes are supposed to fit very tight and at a minimum your toes should be touching the end of the shoe. Your toes will be curled a bit if you buy a size down for a more performance fit. FREE non-instructional climbing DVD included!
Just note this is WOMENS sizing and runs small. I am usually a 9 and ordered an 8.5 thinking it was mens but had to return. The 9.5 fit perfectly. Shoes are great for a solid price.
Excellent grip when on the walls, really hold me up better then the other shoes I’ve used and not bad for comfort even before breaking them in
Good for beginning climbers
These shoes are exactly what we expected–they are a nice intro shoe for occasional climbers. These have only been used indoors, but have held up well over the last couple of months. We climb once or twice a week. Good shoe at a good price.

Cheapest out there but work really great, have worn them once on rock and about 5-6 times at the gym, are in great condition as of now, also they look awesome!
At least a full size small
These run at least a full size small, maybe more. I normally wear a 9.5 M. Sometimes I can squeeze into a 9 but that will be squeezing my toes. Got these in a size 10 and there was absolutely no way I could ever hope to get my foot in them, let alone actually wear them. Measured by putting my foot on the bottom sole they were around an half-inch smaller than my foot, so I would guess these were equivalent to a size 8.5 or so. I ended up getting another Climb X shoe (basically same as this but a different color) in a size 11 to fit, and they are still very tight, with my toes jammed in, but wearable. I understand climbing shoes are supposed to fit snug, but they certainly aren’t supposed to be painful. I don’t have a lot to compare them to since the only other shoes I’ve tried have been the gym’s Evolv rental shoes, and with those rental shoes I needed to go a half-size up and they were already very worn in.

As everyone else has said, these run small. I am normally a 9, but had to keep sending them back to get the fit I need. So basically I went from a 9 to an 11. Still tight but hope they loosen into what I want.
Work great, Excellent cost. Perfect for a first buy.
I’m giving this a 3 for right now until I use this but I wanted to comment on the size because I was very unsure when I ordered these.
Sizing is tricky
Good shoes for the price. The only issue I had was the size. They run small. I’m a 9.5 women’s shoe and I bought these in a 10 and they were still too small. I would have rather gotten them in a size 11. Hope that helps someone pick out the right size.
A Great Pair of Shoes!
These climbing shoes are fantastic and I love them! They are the first pair of climbing shoes I’ve gotten, and i couldn’t be happier. I listened to the previous reviews and went a half size higher than my normal climbing shoe, which is a half size higher than my everyday shoe size.
The quality is great however the sizing is WAY OFF
I bought this for my son who loves to boulder. The quality is great however the sizing is WAY OFF! He usual wears a 7.5 in mens or a 9 in Womens so I bought a 9 based on reviews. They didn’t come close to fitting. I returned them and bought a 10. STILL SMALL. I am sending them back for an 11!! I’m hoping those will fit.
